Xbox One vs PS4

Since the original announcement of the Xbox One back at E3, Xbox was very clear about its used game policy. If you purchase an disc based game from a retailer, as soon as you play that disc on your Xbox it would be registered virtually to that Xbox and could only be shared with ten “family” members. Meaning the game could no longer be lent out freely or traded in at retail stores. Xbox One would also require daily online check-ins in order to play any single or multiplayer game. If you couldn’t sign into Xbox Live at least once every 24 hours then you were more or less screwed. (PS4, Xbox One)

Xbox One vs PS4

People like you are the reason this website is so full of fanboy wars.

Lmao "RobotChickensMostOne-Sid edFights".

Wimpy kids screams "That'sIt!" Rolls into a Goliath.
Goliath picks up chairs and slings it into a wall.

That's the first thing that came to mind when I read your comment...

I'm not gonna lie, I preordered my xb1 first. No doubt in the future I will get a PS4. Right now though. I like the day 1 lineup, also I want a dvr. The PS4 is too hard to get right now anyway.
DatRealBoy  +   670d ago
@sofresh you know ps4 have a dvr right
Gamingcapacity  +   670d ago
Not sure about the part where they mention that both companies took a "if it aint broke, don't fix it" approach. Both controllers have seen drastic changes and a lot of improvements judging by the hands on I've read.

I'm still waiting for a true and proper hardware comparison by tech minded people. Is there any that somebody could link me to?
TomShoe  +   670d ago

It's not like I need to explain why.

I am waiting for a good PS4 bundle to be available again.

No contest.

PS4 for me.

Expect to get hit with spam on these comments. Doesn't seem that it'll do anything, sadly.

I'm waiting on some more games that interest me. Well, I should say I'm waiting on some exclusives that interest me. So far, it's only Titanfall, and I don't need an XB1 for that.
MysticStrummer  +   669d ago
"Expect to get hit with spam on these comments."

Yeah Maria forwarded me at least part of a conversation with a mod.

This site makes no damn sense.

N4G encourages and even thrives on flame bait, but flaming in the comments section is frowned upon. The mod even admitted Maria said nothing incorrect, but brought down the ban hammer anyway.
Hicken  +   669d ago
Yeah, I read it, too. Not sure I get it.

No, I'm sure I don't.

Far worse comments on a more frequent basis by others, and they're still able to post.

I just don't get it.
MRMagoo123  +   669d ago
WTF so maria gets banned but elite24gamer is still running around spreading complete BS lies and he is fine ???!

yeh sony biased site for sure /s
cvflyboy  +   670d ago
I say ps4 for the hardware and exclusives, but hey if you are a camera enthusiast then the xbone is a great choice. :-)
sincitysir1  +   670d ago
I'm a one gal kinda guy. Xbox is Miley Cyrus and ps4 is Catherine zeta jones. She knows what she's doing ;)
Sevir  +   669d ago
I'll just stay with the PS4. Dual console ownership is far too expensive and eventually one simply gets more usage. No use in having a machine that will barely get usage. Money well spent on Nov 15th, 2013. :)

To everyone psyched for November 2013 it's gonna be the best holiday season in a great while. Next Gen launches for gamers everywhere.
gamerspective  +   670d ago
I have preorded a PS4 :)
YNWA96  +   670d ago
Preordered both, because I like games, not clicking on links on why I should not buy a console.... Damn me for that if you must...

Gold punch, good for you, but other people do watch TV and do other stuff too, but as I said, good for you...

Why not WiiU and PS4?

WiiU and PS4 is a better combo.

XB1_PS4  +   670d ago
By that logic, so is the Wii U and XB1.
waltyftm  +   670d ago
Wii U, are you having a laugh, this is a next gen versus not a last gen and a half.
blackbeld  +   670d ago

Because the PS4 has more raw power #dealwithit
WiiU got Zelda!

Xbox games I do not like it and most of them are multi-platform games.

@blackbeld Yeah, I'm a PC gamer first. Please don't get into this "power" thing you speak of.
BallsEye  +   669d ago
woah so many disagrees for people who want both/ N4g is infested with kids who get toys from their parents. Fanboys destroying gaming. I remember, back in the day me and my friends wanted to have as many gaming systems as possible, to play as many games as possible! It was awesome. Now the american way kicked in which is " my sh!t is better than yours no matter what and FU". I'll be buying Xbox One for me and my family, later maybe ps4 if it gets games that will interest me. I want project spark with kinect mocap for my games already! (yea it works! Project Spark YT)

Oh, this thread again?
BlueBlood17  +   669d ago
I'm just sick of them never giving an honest bloody verdict!
GoldPunch-TR  +   670d ago
Of Course PS4. Because I am gamer not TV Viewer.
Hicken  +   669d ago
I view TV. Just not so much through my game console.

So yeah, PS4.
cyberninja  +   670d ago
Here we go again...
riceking  +   670d ago
again with this.....
memots  +   670d ago
Ps4 DaY 1 first then X1.

I need X1 to be cheaper , I need to know if playing with a wheel on the x1 will somewhat be affordable.
Forza and Halo are what is attracting me to the X1 nothing else at this point scream day 1 for me apart for Forza.
BigShotSmoov007  +   670d ago
Great, another xbox one vs ps4 thread, oh how I love these.
MRMagoo123  +   669d ago
im not sure if you know this but you dont have to click the article or even comment , soooooooo maybe dont bother if you dont care perhaps
Aleithian  +   670d ago
Shouldn't the title read "XBOX 1 vs. XBOX 1"? Because that's the only fight that's taking place at the moment. It's basically sitting at the back of the room hitting itself.

Both. *Burns console war flags and fanboy Bibles with a flamethrower*

Ps4 wins.... Supreme Victory.... Perfect.
NobleRed  +   670d ago
PS4 rocks X-Bone sucks.
dcortz2027  +   669d ago
PS4, Xbox One when it's cheaper or when a new redesigned model comes out. The PS4 has everything the Xbox One offers and more.
luisvideogames  +   669d ago
PS4 wins so hard it's not even funny anymore (maybe a little bit). Microsoft has strayed so far away from gaming, it's focus isn't even on gaming anymore. TV TV SPORTS TV
luisvideogames  +   669d ago
TBH I pre-ordered both an Xbox One and PS4.....just not sure which one to pay for, in dis economy.
AceofStaves  +   669d ago
PS4 was the clear choice for me.
DarthBigE  +   669d ago
"...it has to be taken into account that part of the RAM is used to run the operating system. With the Playstation 4, 3.5GB of the RAM is dedicated to the OS, leaving 4.5GB for the developers to use when making games for the console..."

I thought that the ps4 OS only needed 1 gig to operate thus leaving 7 for the game. Did they change it?

Xbox one :) can't wait to get my hands on forza, dr3, KI and Halo :)
Shake_Zula  +   669d ago
I'm going to get a day 1 PS4 as admittedly, I'm a P fanboy at heart (don't act like you weren't excited for the PS3 before the 360 came out).

I'll get an Xbox One likely once I get confirmation that Halo 5 was either done correctly or not. I mean, honestly, MS typically drops it's price down faster than Sony does since they still have Windows and Office selling and being used at probably twice the rate of any console.

I'll just punch someone in the face for one next Black Friday! lol

I think the bigger question is who among us is going to shell out for 4K TV's first? @_@

Trying to finish forza 3 and 4 I didn't want to hire a driver but I will be driving for years if I don't the games just huge doing the calendar events. I want to get it done so I can focus on F5 without the backlog chipping away at the back of mind the new pc is to blame taking up my time.
FANTA1180  +   669d ago
xbox first then wii u then see if anything good comes out for ps4 ...
jspillen  +   669d ago
Sony has made all the right gamer friendly decisions for the next gen.

Microsoft has had blunder after blunder and only last week finished tinkering with the Xbone in order to try and get it closer to the PS4 in specs. They began production this week after less than 7 days of testing.

That's just not good tech engineering. BUYER BEWARE !!!
Vip3r  +   669d ago
780GTX for me. ;)

But afterwards, a PS4. Next gen Uncharted will be unmissable.
